in ukraine. now kerry is there today. formally, it said that he is there to find out what they need. but they could say that in an e-mail. we know what they need. they want money and military. he is there to try to chill this government out, because they've been doing provocative things that have been provoking the russians. if this is going to be our government, this so-called government in kiev, which was not elected, which overthrow the constitution, which deposed the president and has run parliament, it at least has to behave decently, or america and europe can't rally around it. i think that's what kerry is trying to do. can he do it? i don't know, because all politics are local. >> my thought, gene, i think the president went too far on friday. i think the president played his part in this escalation on friday. what do you think? it's been calm enough. >> i don't think the president did anything particularly wrong. you know, because what putin did was an aggressive move. i think the professor is right. i think the government in kiev has to figure a way to live with russia, whi
state john kerry urged all parties not to inflame the situation. >> we urge all parties, that includes the new interim technical government, rightists, oppositionists, others, anybody in the streets that are arm, we urge all parties to avoid all steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to miscalculation or do anything to work, to bring peace and stability, and peaceful transition within the governing process of ukraine. >> the white house is also keeping a close eye on the situation in ukraine. >> we're not going to speculate about what we might do if something might happen. we're going to focus on the kinds of communication we're having right now, and focus on the international 1969 to assist ukraine. >> as the reportedly russian-backed soldiers took up their positions in crimea, former ukrainian president viktor yanukovych, was holding a news conference in southern russia. he insists he is still president of the country. >> i repeat it over again. i'm the elected president of ukraine, and i remain the legitimate president of ukraine. >> philty nery joins us live, and the country is

question now, can vladimir putin get away with it? secretary of state kerry told george stephanopoulos there will be a tough response from u.s. and allies. >> russia may be able to invade crimea. but in the end, russia will isolate itself. >> reporter: already, the markets are punishing putin with the ruble, russia's currency, plunging to all-time lows. but the deed is done. here in crimea, most people have welcomed the russian troops rejecting the pro-western revolution in the other half of their country last week. it's calm on the surface. but as we spoke with a woman holding a ukrainian flag a tiny gesture of defiance against russia, we saw the fierce passions just below the surface. civil war is now a real possibility in ukraine. diplomacy with the russians in control here is where the action is. president obama struggling to come up with some kind of approach that is creative enough to diffuse the tensions and strong enough to get russia to back down. there is no sign of that, george, right now. vladimir putin is getting what he wants. >> that's right. secretary kerry going to be

. in the west, officials like john kerry declare support for ukraine. what exactly can they do for the country. >> ukraine will need a lot of money. the economy is in shambles, there has been a lot of corruption, it's the corrupt country in europe. the new leadership is estimating they'll need $35 billion over the next two years to sort things out. now, the international monetary fund is putting together some deal, but it will mean economic reforms. it will be painful. it will be painful in the south and east. it had old soviet style industries. that will make it difficult as well. the reforms will be painful. it will mean getting rid of a bloated government, government administration trying to modernize industry and we may see the problems we saw in greece when it tried to modernize to bring itself up to european standards. ukraine has a long way to go. it won't be easy by a long shot. the country is close to bankruptcy. this is the only way they could set a budget. it's on hold, and it may need a lot of money, a lot of money quickly. >> thank you for being with us. >> former president jimmy

. but there was a headline on your website referring to michele troll getsretiring goaded." said that kerry russian intervention would be a mistake. he says any declaration from this of menstruation carries a weight of a feather. better than nothing, better still would be backing these words with the flotilla and the black sea. after the united states was leading europe to counter russian pressure and make up for its punishments until the ukraine is on a firm footing. you agree with that assessment? the weight of this administration carries the weight of the feather? caller: yes, i do. mr. putin will do what he wants to do. he will do that. pretty much anything is going to do what they want to do. china, whoever. not much we can do right now. we are so wounded right now with the current president. he much the rest of the government. especially the senate right now. referringclip you are to is not a c-span clip by the user created clip. we will certainly look into that for you. let's go to ronald waiting in monterey, california. on our line for independents as we continue to talk about the ukraine t
the talks that are going on as we speed between u.s. secretary of state john kerry and foreign minister lavrov. given the fertility of the situation on the ground, does the prime minister agreed one important outcome from these talks would be if they lead to direct high level talks between russia and ukraine? >> in order to de-escalate the situation the most important thing that should be arranged is a forum for discussions in which the russians and ukrainians can speak to each other. there have been some contacts between russia ministers and ukrainian ministers. this morning their meetings taking place in paris covering other issues as well but there has been some progress in putting together a contact group, an idea i proposed to the prime minister back in january to start having a group of countries around russia and ukraine to encourage such dialogue to take place. that's the single most important thing that could help to de-escalate the situation. >> mr. speaker, clearly we all up for a good outcome from those talks by the eu also has a crucial role to play. does he agree the eu at
nuclear news this morning. secretary of state john kerry says military action should be a last resort in the effort to get iran to abandon its nuclear activities. the secretary says the u.s. has an obligation to pursue negotiations with tehran first. iran struck a preliminary agreement with six world powers, including the united states, to halt its most sensitive nuclear operations, getting relief from some economic sanctions in return. president obama has said that all options are on the table regarding iran's nuclear program. >>> in syria this morning, hezbollah fighters are said to be taking the lead against rebels in syria's 3-year-old civil war. hezbollah in tandem with regime forces prevented a rebel takeover of damascus. nearly 200 rebel soldiers have been killed in this ongoing battle in a region just east of the capital. >>> a bill aimed at taking the prosecution of sex assaults and other crimes out of the hands of military commanders is expected to come up for a senate vote in the next few weeks. on wednesday, lawmakers heard from victims who said they felt abandoned by thei

. as for the president and his advisers, i talked to a number of them this afternoon. he said that john kerry, the secretary of state, and the president himself are making it clear that our interests in the region are for the freedom of the ukrainian people. their right to self-determination. for the rights of russians, by the way, and russian speakers in the region dealt with peacefully. and for respect for international law. those are things that they plan to pursue. i also think that they know that the right thing to do here is that probably not get into a swearing match or proto military confrontation with vladimir putin. you don't corner the animal. and that's sort of the situation we're in here right now. and they're trying to be cool and to ratchet down the rhetoric because they think that putin has overplayed his hand, and that they think they've got a way to get back, get back at him. the problem that the president has is that the europeans don't do what the united states wants anymore. and putin supplies most of the gas to western europe. and that's a problem. >> well, senators mcca
remains extremely important. i think i secretary clinton, secretary kerry, the president of the training has had on so many occasions that this will not in military. there ought to be some way for reconciliation to be possible. the second principle as well, which is i always felt in the time i had this responsibility, and this kind of diplomacy has got to be backed by force. it isn't necessarily backed by american force but this, idea if you're in gave of reconciliation is another reason to be in favor of a sign to be bsa. another favor for american forces and international forces and it's a very important reason to be in favor of continued support for afghan national security forces it seems to me that taliban is watching very carefully how we work our way through these next few months to decide whether be any pressure on them to make this step toward reconciliation so the effect of the military effort, international and afghan, still is really important third point seems to me on reconciliation as you look back and circling makes you think about it very carefully and watching the film
in ukraine very closely. i met with them again today. as many of you know, john kerry is in kiev as we speak, at my direction. he's expressing our full support for the ukrainian people. over the past several weeks, we've been working with our partners and with the i.m.f. to build international support for a package that helps to stabilize ukraine's economy. and today we announced a significant package of our own to support the ukraine's economy and to also provide them with the technical assistance they need. it includes a plan loan guarantee package of $1 billion. it provides immediate technical expertise to ukraine to repair its economy. importantly, it provides for assistance to help ukraine plan for elections that are going to be coming up very soon. as i said yesterday, it is important that congress stand with us. i don't doubt the bipartisan concern that's been expressed about the situation in the ukraine. there is something immediate congress can do to help us. that is to help finance the economic package that could stabilize the economy in ukraine, help to make sure that fair and fre
and models. he admits that he has to consider selling by kerry or spinning off some union -- selling a blackberry or spinning off some units. >> running a public company, anything to help our shoulders i have to take a serious look at -- to help our shareholders i have to take a serious look at. today we need to build up that base. the point is, i think the is tied to our best, and a price book is, that is going to be huge -- enterprise focus, that is going to be huge but until we get to the point where we showcase that potential, it is too early to think about getting to $19 billion. telecomt to bring in a analyst at bloomberg industries but also with us, our guest host for the hour, greg rayburn, also worked in telecom as the chief restructuring officer for world, during its own -- for worldcom during its own bankruptcy. you have been closely following what john chen is doing. he did a great job with turnaround on another company. you see those same elements at blackberry? >> i really do, betty. one thing i love about john chen is that he has that rare talent of really looking belo
